A Walk With Your Dog

George Barnett For the best Pilates for beginners company, call Cara McGrath Pilates.

You have decided to start a fitness routine that involves both you and your dog. That’s great! And it’s great for both you and your dog as you will both benefit from the walk, the fresh air, the exercise, and the opportunity to poop in the neighbor’s yard. Well, okay, maybe that last one should be limited to the dog, but it does bring up an important point when you are walking with your dog. That is, your dog has a different agenda on the walk than you do.
You want to walk to lose weight, lower your cholesterol, improve your circulation or any number of other reasons that all have to do with your health. These are all good reasons for getting off the couch and walking. Your dog will share your enthusiasm for the walk. When you go though your routine of getting ready for the walk, your dog will become more excited and animated in anticipation of a walk with you. But for entirely different reasons.
As you leave your home for your walk your dog will be pulling on his leash, anxious to get into the neighborhood. His tail will be held high, which means something to the dog, and it is very possible that his nose will be scanning the ground as you walk. The dog’s nose is a very sensitive organ and we humans have learned to put the dog’s nose to work for us. Humans have yet to build a machine that is half as sensitive as a dog’s nose. Your dog is just a family pet, not trained to hunt for criminals or lost skiers. Nevertheless, he still has that nose and he wants to put it to good use. Your walk is his opportunity to do that.
You may notice that some dogs take their duties, as dogs, more seriously than others. A dog from a working breed may give some passing attention to the various scents that fill the air near ground level. For a dog like this it is more in the nature of reading the morning paper. A dog from a hunting breed, on the other hand, will study a scent in great detail. For this kind of dog it is more in the nature of a technical journal that must be scrupulously examined and analyzed. There is far more information in the scent that your dog is sniffing at that we, as humans, will ever know.
What this means to you is that a walk with your dog will not be undertaken at a consistent speed or pace and may involve numerous stops, especially in those areas where other dogs are known to pass. This is where your agenda will be different from your dog’s. Using an extending leash can help to reduce the disparity between your pace and your dog’s.
But this is not a bad thing. Walking your dog is still good exercise. In fact, studies indicate that even moderate exercise, like you might get by walking with your dog, can significantly reduce a man’s risk of heart attack and the benefit is even greater for a woman. In addition, your dog will prove to be a great motivator. Dog’s are creatures of habit and when your dog starts walking with you he will quickly develop that habit. On those days when you just don’t feel like walking, your dog will, and he will let you know that, no matter how you feel, he still wants to go for that walk.
So, before you start a new exercise routine go talk to your doctor. Then talk to your dog. Everyone will agree that a daily walk will be a good thing to pursue.
One last thing. Another habit to build, besides the walk itself, is to take one of those plastic grocery bags with you on your walk. Your dog will not have any inhibitions about defecating in your neighbor’s lawn. “When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.” Should you dog do something indiscreet clean it up using the plastic grocery bag and maybe a garden trowel. That is what a good neighbor does as well as a responsible dog owner.
Enjoy your walk! Your heart, and your dog, will thank you.

The truth is, it has its place, but – please! not on your drywall

Actually, people who use fiberglass tape instead of paper tape for drywall taping are helping me make a living. read more

A Visualization Exercise on Managing Expectations for Adults with ADD

Jennifer Koretsky For the best Pilates for beginners company, call Cara McGrath Pilates.
1703.
As adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), we often find ourselves excited by new ideas and plans, but overwhelmed by what it will take to reach the goals.
Many of my coaching clients find themselves in this situation. They make a decision to make a change – a big change. Sometimes it’s about moving up in the world, like finding a new and better home. Sometimes the change is about pursing a dream, like taking a passion for art and turning it into a career. And sometimes the change involves a mental shift to become a better person, like learning to overcome anger.
No matter what big and exciting change is on the horizon, we can sometimes find that our impulsivity has us not only wanting – but expecting – the change to happen much quicker than is actually possibly. We have unrealistic expectations of what we are able to accomplish when. When this happens, disappointment, lack of motivation, and even feelings of failure, are quite common.
When one of my clients finds them self in a situation like this, I take them through a visualization exercise that I call “The Temple.” The following directions will allow you to use this exercise in your own life.
The Temple: A Visualization Exercise
Step 1: Pick the Goal
Pick a goal that you are excited about – a change you really want to make.
Step 2: Relax
Sit back, relax, and close your eyes. Focus on your breath going in and out, and allow worries and concerns to be breathed away…just for a little bit.
Step 3: Visualize a Temple
Create – in your mind – the vision of a beautiful, peaceful temple. It is your temple, and it can be anywhere. It can look any way you like. Get a very vivid image of this temple in your mind.
The temple is your goal. When you reach your goal, you will reach your temple.
Connect with your goal. What will it feel like when you reach that goal? Think of the emotions you will experience. Think about what it will feel like to be in that temple.
Step 4: Visualize Your Steps
Now imagine that your temple is being raised into the sky. As your temple rises, stairs appear. The stairs to your temple are steps to your goal.
Ask yourself, what are the steps that I need to climb in order to reach my goal? What has to happen in order for me to reach that goal?
Are there any steps on the way to your goal that you have already achieved? If so, visualize yourself climbing the stairs to your temple.
Step 5: Check-in With Yourself
Do this exercise on a regular basis. Each time you take a step towards your goal, visualize yourself climbing a stair to your temple.
Understand that some steps will be easy to climb, and some will be a little harder and will take more time. Even though it may seem like you’ve been working a long time and not getting anywhere on your goal, don’t lose sight of the fact that if you are climbing the stairs, then you are making progress.
When you get impatient and frustrated about your progress, remember that life in itself is a journey. Growth and personal progress don’t happen in the temple, they happen on the way to the temple.

Vitamins are essential to keep your heart healthy. Of
course, you need to eat the right foods with less fat and
cholesterol, but you need to supplement your food with
vitamins to keep your body in the best shape and your heart
pumping for a long time.

Vitamin E is the first vitamin that pops into the mind of
those that are looking to improve their overall heart
health. Vitamin E seems to stop cholesterol in the body
from oxidizing and harming the arteries surrounding the
heart. When cholesterol oxidizes, it’s more able to stick
to the sides of the arteries and cause buildup and possible
blockage that can lead to heart attacks and other
infarctions. read more

Window shutters add a nice touch to a homes exterior. In other parts of the world, especially Europe and the Caribbean, shutters serve a functional purpose. They cover windows by night or in bad weather to keep out bad weather or cold air. By day they are pushed open from the inside and secured in place to let daylight and the suns warmth into a home. This is especially important in communities where the majority of residents lack central heating or air conditioning. read more

With fixed incomes, a comfortable retirement seems to be slipping away.
Retirement is re defining itself. The days of a lifetime pension and 401ks are being wiped out. You must think and live different than our Mothers and Fathers did before us. The nest egg is under attack with high health rates, limited 401k’s and lack of pension plans from former employment. Some day Social Security may not be available. What are we to do?
Today a person coming to retirement must study and understand their future goals. A plan must be in place. Some may have to work part time to assist their retirement funds, and some maybe able to live from rare pension plans and investments. Education is the key. Classes, Seminars and home study is available and necessary.
Here are a few items to cover:
– How do the changes for 2006 affect me?
– What do you need to understand about the new Medicare plans.
– How do I plan for retirement.
– Can you plan on your pension?
Business Subjects That affect Retirement:
– How do I manage my portfolio.
– What investment should you consider?
– What do you need to know about Social Security and Medicare.
